Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Jerry and the banjo

I knwo Jerry was rather fond of the banjo. I read that he was great at playing it too. IF he loved the instrument so much, why did he never play it once with the Dead? Also, anyone know of any recordings of Jerry on banjo?

Isn't there a banjo outro on the Dark Star single? I think it's on What a Long Strange Trip.

"Isn't there a banjo outro on the Dark Star single? I think it's on What a Long Strange Trip."

That was the 45 rpm shortie version. It reminds of Stephen Stills picking his banjo on the album version of Bluebird.

See the Jerry Site if you want more details about his playing with the New Riders and Old & In the Way. Shows with other banjo players are not listed there. Lots of info about the JGB lineups too...

I know Garcia toured with that band!

The movie was very cool but I don't believe Garcia plays banjo in that movie?

the new riders of purple sage,this was quite common in 1970.i think that's marmuduke singing along with the band.cliff or william tell and ghostofpig can narrow it down.i believe david nelson also joined them on songs like cold jordan etc..

Banjo?

Cliffs had enough Banjos, thank you!

Cliff could be wrong but that sounds like Dave Nelson on a Mandolin or Dobro.

Dynamite pick sugaree, here's another treasure with both Nelson and Grisman, no Banjo though...

Great music Cliff, but a tad too much hiss (and I'm not 100% sure there ain't a banjo sneakin into that acoustic set, though I'm willing to concede).

just saying, it woulda been a cool rarity if jerry played the bajo for a song or two every now and then, would have added to their outstanding creativity

To possibly answer your inquiry into why banjo is not a big part of the Dead just look at the musicial lineups that Tigerbolt provided Rowan can play lead guitar and Grisman is handy with the mandolin, while Weir is strictly rythymn (phil-was a lead guitarist until about 73 on the bass- but that is another story)
